Reflecting on a Successful Summer

It sure has been a busy and successful summer for all of us here at The Bull…

Our award-winning garden has been buzzing with customers ordering our delicious stone-baked pizzas, drinks and new Mr Whippy Ice-creams from the Shack. The government’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme kept us busy during August, so much so that we extended our Shack opening hours to accommodate for all of you lovely people that were desperate to dine with us.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who has come out and supported us over the summer, it means so much to us.

So far September is blessing us with some glorious weather so we will continue to keep The Shack open over the weekends at the following times:

Fridays – 5-9pm
Saturdays – 12-9pm
Sundays – 12-8pm.

Let’s hope this Indian Summer we’re having hangs around for a little longer so we can look forward to seeing more of your lovely faces over the next few weeks!

Keeping you safe – the update…

We continue to receive great feedback regarding all the new measures we’ve put in place since reopening in July.

Following the governments advice, from Monday 14th September we will now be asking those who visit us to register their details onto our track and trace system – our staff can advise you how to do this upon visiting. Also, in line with the governments new ‘rule of 6’ we will now only be taking bookings for tables of up to six people.

To take a look at everything we are doing to ensure you feel as comfortable as possible during your time with us, please visit our website at: and click on ‘Ready to Reopen’.
